The garden and the swimming pool

And in case you come in May, you will find the citrus trees at Villa Arturo and all over Sorrento in bloom: the sweet and intense perfume spreads from gardens and takes over streets regardless of the traffic there might be. As an old Neapolitan song says, “it’s that scent, which along the sky and the sea of Sorrento, grants us joy to live and willingness to sing!”
Around the swimming-pool, you will also find a green lawn rich in citrus trees. You will find sun loungers and umbrellas as well.

Left on 09/28/2010 for a stay in August 2010 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Sep 28, 2010Stayed Aug 2010
We had the most terrific time in Sorrento, helped by the good weather. Our accommodation was an apartment on a property on the outskirts of town. It was an easy walk to food shops, and a leisurely stroll to the town centre. The surroundings were an orchard, and the property had a fine pool. The apartment was clean and very adequate. The owners were delightful, we loved them. They gave great advice about sightseeing, and had ready smiles. One of the brothers, Gino, is a chef and he prepared a group meal twice in the week, that guests could choose to attend. We did and throughly enjoyed chatting to other travellers. The meals were held at a lovely outdoor covered eating area, just fabulous. We highly recommend this place.
